You Choose

Life happens.
If you ignore it
or pretend that
time isn't hurtling forward,
you miss out.

Death happens.
If you ignore it
or pretend that
you can prevent getting old,
death still comes.

Life happens.
If you enjoy it
and do your best
to find happiness each day,
you will live.

  2. hurtling forward? Intentional or not, I like this new word. Life flies by even when it isn't sailing smoothly. :)
